As we age from forty-four years old, our vision will deteriorate. As practitioners of life cultivation, we infer that our kidneys are performing below par, and that we do not have sufficient blood and nutrients to reach our eyes. Thus we must be careful on what we eat to prevent further vision problems.
This is a normal phenomenon. The main reasons for this to happen are the imbalance of multivitamins and minerals, especially the lack of vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
Food and drink rules
As a preventive measure, we must follow the following rules in our diet:
- Foods and drinks seasonings must be light (less sodium)
- Eat more beans and nuts, fruits and vegetables
- Avoid high fat and fried foods
- Add animal livers (chicken liver, goat liver, calf liver, and pig liver) to our diet, but not to exceed thirty grams each time, and not to exceed three times a week
We include the following common foods in our diet as much as possible.
- Black bean
- Black rice
- Sweet potato (yam)
- Tangerine and orange
We also include the following less common foods in our diet once in a while.
